Complete Violin Works of Ezra Pound, 1923-1933
First edition of 300, commentary with music scores.
Robert Hughes, Editor
Introduction by Margaret Fisher
Part I. A literary and technical study of Ezra Pound's solo violin works, many of which were composed for the American specialist in new music, violinist Olga Rudge.
Part II. Thirteen engraved performance scores and seven facsimile reproductions of Pound's holograph scores. Among the eight original compositions is Sestina: Altaforte, the only instance of a musical setting of his own poetry. The volume also includes Pound's settings of poems by Froissart, Dante, and Cavalcanti as well as arrangements of 12th- and 15th-century vocal works for violin.
